CVS pharmacy technician sentenced to probation

A CVS technician has been sentenced to five years probation for stealing prescription pills and receiving money from customers in a scheme that netted more than $3 million in drug money.

Lorenzo Gavino, 45, pleaded guilty to felony drug conspiracy in December and was sentenced Friday by a federal judge in Philadelphia.

Prosecutors said he used a network of drug dealers and employees to sell and buy prescription drugs for more than 6,000 people from 2006 to 2016.

Gavino allegedly made more than 5,000 sales totaling more than 2 million dollars in the past two years, prosecutors said.

Gvini was among four CVS pharmacists charged in the scheme.

The other three were charged with racketeering and conspiracy.

Gave out millions to employees and other associates to cover up drug sales, prosecutors alleged.
